Strawberries flower

When I was a child, in Italy, there was a lollipop called “Strawberry flower”.
This dessert reminds me of my childhood
I love refreshing desserts and panna cotta: this combination seems perfect for hot season.
Even if it may seem complicated because of many ingredients and methods, it is easy to prepare.
No baking is required, so it is perfect for summer season.
